%. and jeb bush 10.5%: all these men have a chance to run against hillary clinton in 2016. mrs. clinton is far ahead of any democratic challenger and will remain so. with americans disenchanted by obama care and a bad economy, it would seem the republicans would have some momentum, but they don't. because there is not one clear message. and even on philosophy, political philosophy, the party is deeply divided. it will take a leader like ronald reagan to help heal that breach. now, if you look at the situation nationwide, it's clear the democrats are going to campaign largely in poor and working class precincts. today fast food workers across the country demonstrated for a $15 an hour wage. that has been endorsed by president obama and most every other democrat. the so-called living wage issue will be a democratic hallmark next year. of course, if you give fast food workers a minimum of 15 bucks an hour, fast food prices go up for everybody. so, americans will pay more. that is a primary consideration in the debate. talking points believes the republican party must drop ideology almost e

for the republican governor says he condemned the remarks. >> former president bill clinton is speaking out about those critical comments he made about obama care last month. mr. clinton criticized president obama for his promise if you like your plan you can keep it. on tuesday, he set the record straight on what was or was not behind those remarks. >> is it because you are setting the way for mrs. clinton to run? and seconds, are the problems with obama care limited to the website? >> the answer to the first question is, no. first of all, i said nothing about this. not one word until the president spoke. >> the former president didn't say whether he thought problems with the law were confined to the website. he also didn't give any insight into a possible white house run by wife hillary in 2016. >> changes to frequent flyer programs could be on the way soon. justices heard arguments tuesday from a rap eye who says northwest airlines revoked his platinum elite status. the airline says it did so because he made too many complaints and booked himself on full flights in hopes of getting bumped. law
bill clinton was the featured speaker. bill clinton's relationship with nelson mandela was really, really powerful, wasn't it? >> it was very powerful, wolf. i know they both cherished it, president mandela cherished it and i know president clinton did. in some ways maybe it's presumptuous to say it was a little bit of a father/son relationship. clinton looked up to mandela. mandela was an adviser to him and almost a very personal intimate way, and they shared a real bond, and i loved those beautiful photographs of when clinton went with mandela to robben island and you see them both looking out of mandela's old cell, very powerful. >> i interviewed nelson mandela the day after that visit to robben island back in march of 1998, and during that interview, he spoke glowingly of president clinton, but he also made it clear he did not a have a problem criticizing various u.s. policies and making it clear we an international agenda, there you see a picture of the former president bill clinton, he was president with nelson mandela in the cell in robben island and you see first lady hill
and mrs. bush. >>> another former president is remembering mandela today. president bill clinton, who talked with the anchor of this week, george stephanopoulos. >> he once told me that he lived on hatred, when he went into prison. he said after 11 years he realized that they had taken about everything they could take from him except his mind and heart. he said, i realized that those are things you have to give away, and i decided not to give them away. >> mahatma gandhi, abe lincoln, george washington. he belongs in that group. >> he does. you know, in my lifetime, gandhi and mandela, in no small measure, because of their willingness to give up the comforts of ordinary life, they symbolize the world we'd all like to live in, if we could just be a little bigger, if we could be a little more like them. >> president clinton with george stephanopoulos, president clinton once asked mandela if he still hated his oppressors, mandela answered, nope, they had me 27 years in prison, if i hated them when i walked out the door, they would still have me. >>> and now, we turn next to what was a bi
clinton's budget, john kasich made his own budget. he worked with tim penny and they went on the floor in the middle of this debate and they talked for about 30 minutes, 45 minutes about their vision of how to balance the budget and how to move this country forward. so when i went out on the campaign trail, instead of just criticizing bill clinton, when people asked me what would you do? what would you vote for when you got to washington, d.c., i said that i would do what john was talking about doing. we didn't like hillary's health plan so we had two or three different republican ideas for health-care plans. newt helped put together the contract with america so we went out and we had a positive on the constructive approach in the campaign. and it made a big difference. you remember earl hutto? you served with him. i ran against a 16-year incumbent, a democrat named earl hutto came from a district that hadn't elected a republican since 1873. and they hung the last republican they sent up to washington, d.c. vote for me. even we had ideas. you are laughing because you agree with my dad.
. >> meanwhile, former president bill clinton says his recent suggestion that president obama keep his word and let people keep their health insurance plans was not aimed, or not trying to distance hills from the president's health care law in an effort to help his wife hillary's potential 2016 presidential bid. >> i said nothing about this. not one word, until the president himself spoke. i don't think you can find anybody in america who's worked harder for his re-election or supported this bill or went out of his way to explain the bill to the american people more than i did. >> so mr. clinton says he does not know whether his wife will run for president. and adds that he would support joe biden as a 2016 presidential nominee if he got the nomination. he'll support any democratic nomination. >>> notre dame is suing over obama care birth control mandates. they're doing this again. the university filed a fresh lawsuit opposing insurance for student and employees saying it goes against the teachings of catholic church. the affordable care act does make exceptions for religious institutions.
a chance to run against hillary clinton in 2016. mrs. clinton is far ahead of any democratic challenger and will remain so. with americans disenchanted by obama care and a bad economy, it would seem the republicans would have some momentum, but they don't. because there is not one clear message. and even on philosophy, political philosophy, the party is deeply divided. it will take a leader like ronald reagan to help heal that breach. now, if you look at the situation nationwide, it's clear the democrats are going to campaign largely in poor and working class precincts. today fast food workers across the country demonstrated for a $15 an hour wage. that has been endorsed by president obama and most every other democrat. the so-called living wage issue will be a democratic hallmark next year. of course, if you give fast food workers a minimum of 15 bucks an hour, fast food prices go up for everybody. so, americans will pay more. that is a primary consideration in the debate. talking points believes the republican party must drop ideology almost entirely and concentrate on the economy and

, hillary clinton is someone that my union has supported for every single a job that she is either run for or sought. when she ran for senate in york state, we were out there and very supportive. when she ran for president in 2008, we were out there in supportive. i think it is far too early to talk about any of this. the last i heard, she had not even decided whether she was running or not. i think it is too premature. frankly, there's is a lot of work we have to do between now and 2014, 2015. we are spending our time trying to figure out how to reclaim the promise of public education and figure out how quality health care is something that all americans have and getting through the ups and downs of obamacare. i'm glad we fight is working -- the website is working better now. we need to work on affordable college, making sure there is retirement security for all. there is a lot of work to do the between now and 2015, 2016. >> i would like to get your thoughts on what happened in detroit yesterday. i am curious what you heard from your members in michigan about their concerns on their

the clinton administration when we heard a lot from the dlc about third way. and president clinton himself used the phrase, "the third way." and the idea was, in a boom time when we didn't have such high unemployment, you could make this argument that somehow the interests of the very, very rich were the same as the interests of main street. that's an argument that just does not fly with the occupy generation. and i found this wall street journal editorial hilarious in some ways. because there's no way that you can credibly make the case to general xors and millennials they should be more concerned about the national debt than personal debt, particularly student loan debt which was exploded to $1.3 trillion today. people, young people today, know that their concern is not the tax rate that they're going to pay as they get older. their concern is getting a job at all. and getting some relief from what wall street has engineered. this incredibly unfair debt burden. and it's no accident that the board of third way is comprised of wall street bankers and that the policies they are pushing are
